Professional Development Programme for Aspiring Non-Executive Directors

The role of a Non-Executive Director (NED) is prestigious and wide-ranging, encompassing everything from the membership and chairing of committees, to the overall chairmanship of a company. Despite this, company induction programmes for NEDs tend to be organisation-specific and may not cover the wider issues of board life.

In brief

Two key roles of a board are determining strategic direction and leading the governance of an organisation. Non-Executive Directors (NED) do not have internal knowledge, but are being held more accountable for firm actions and results. Cass Business School and PWC have teamed up to help aspiring NEDs understand the serious responsibilities and accountabilities of a board role. Practical sessions will help you identify Non-Executive Director opportunities, understand the process of obtaining your first appointment, present your relevant experience with clarity and enable you to succeed in the boardroom.
